The Best Buffalo Wings
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1kg chicken wings, jointed
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • good pinch of pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter (add more butter for milder wings)
  • ½ cup of Franks RedHot sauce
  • oil, for deep frying
  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper.
  3. Add the chicken wings and toss through until well coated with the flour mixture.
  4. Place the wings on a baking tray and bake for 30 minutes until cooked through (they should still be a pale-ish colour). If you want to skip the following deep-frying step, make sure to space the wings slightly apart on a baking tray and place in the fridge - this will allow the coating to dry and give it more of a chance to crisp up in the oven - bake for a bit longer than 30 minutes until slightly coloured.
  5. While the wings are cooking, melt the butter and hot sauce in a small saucepan over a low heat. Set aside.
  6. Heat oil to 180C in a wok or deep fryer and fry the wings for 2-3 minutes, just to crisp up the outside. It’s a bit of a hassle, but absolutely worth it.
  7. Toss the wings in buttery hot sauce and serve while still warm.
